About this author

Doug Solter writes young adult novels and screenplays. He respects cats, loves the mountains, and one time took a stroll on the streets of Barcelona. Doug lives in Oklahoma where he spends time with friends, good music, and the characters in his head who won't leave.

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”
Mark Twain

“To be a great champion you must believe you are the best. If you’re not, pretend you are.”
Muhammad Ali

“Be ruthless about protecting writing days, i.e., do not cave in to endless requests to have "essential" and "long overdue" meetings on those days. The funny thing is that, although writing has been my actual job for several years now, I still seem to have to fight for time in which to do it. Some people do not seem to grasp that I still have to sit down in peace and write the books, apparently believing that they pop up like mushrooms without my connivance. I must therefore guard the time allotted to writing as a Hungarian Horntail guards its firstborn egg.”
J.K. Rowling
